Google Pixel 2, Home Mini & Pixelbook leak out

It seems like all of Google’s upcoming announcements for their October 4th event have leaked out.

According to Droid Life, Google will reveal the Pixel 2 & Pixel 2 XL, the Google Home Mini, a refreshed version of the Daydream View and new Chromebook by the name of the Pixelbook.

Pixel 2 in Kinda Blue

Droid Life managed to obtain some info on the upcoming HTC-built Pixel 2. The device will be available in three colours, Kinda Blue, Just Black and Clearly White.

The Pixel 2 will be available in two storage options, 64GB and 128GB and be priced at $649 USD and $749 USD respectively.

Droid Life also managed to get some info on the LG-made Pixel 2 XL. The Pixel 2 XL will be available in a Black & White colour combination, that looks sort of like a panda.

Google Home Mini

Google Home Mini in Charcoal

The Google Home Mini will be Google’s answer to the Echo Dot. The Home Mini will have the same capabilities as the standard Google Home, just at a lower price point and smaller package.

Google Home Mini in Chalk

The device will have LED lights on the top it just like the standard Home.

Google Home Mini in Coral

The Home Mini will be available in three colours, Chalk (grey), Charcoal (black) and Coral and go for $49 USD (roughly $60 CAD).

Daydream View (2017)

Google will be giving their Daydream View headset a slight redesign. The 2017 version of the headset will come in three new colours, Charcoal (black), Fog (grey) and Coral.

Last year’s Daydream View had a cloth-like finish while this year’s model looks more nylon. The controller doesn’t look like it’s changed other than it comes in the same colours as the headset.

The new Daydream View headset will retail for $99 USD (around $120 CAD), last year’s model went for $79 USD ($99 CAD).

Google Pixelbook

It looks like Google is trying to compete with the Microsoft Surface Pro with the new Pixelbook.

The Pixelbook has more of a tablet design than a standard laptop design in previous models. There will also be an optional pressure sensitive Pixelbook Pen which can be used to interact with the Pixelbook, the Pen will retail for $99 USD.

The Pixelbook will come in Silver and have three storage options, 128GB for $1,199 USD, 256GB for $1,399 USD and 512GB for $1,749 USD. It still remains unclear if Google plans to release the upcoming Pixelbook outside the US, especially since both Chromebook Pixels were never released in Canada or other countries.

We should be getting more details about all the products that leaked today, at Google’s October 4th event.
